Greatest inspiration and why? Lindsey Vonn. An American former World Cup alpine ski racer who suffered from multiple knee injuries, her worst injury being her knee. She physically couldn’t compete in the Sochi Olympics. She basically told social media that “you can’t do anything to stop injuries from happening, if you injure yourself it means you’re having a go.” She came back and won gold in the downhill and bronze in the Super-G.
Which AFL player do you model your game on and why? No one in particular, I admire all of the players as they are constantly making AFLW bigger and they are all very talented.
